WHAT’S YOUR BEST BIT OF ADVICE?
Book accommodation well in advance – a year ahead if you can, but definitely five months. Aaron Barnes Despite being a seasoned walker I found some stretches quite demanding so plan ahead and don’t try to do too much in one day. Kevin Alsop Well-fitting boots, good waterproofs. Kate Turnbull (and many others) Slow down on the first day. I was sure I needed to walk fast and I arrived early with a blister that could have been prevented if I hadn’t rushed. Caroline Green Baggage transfer – it’s a godsend.
Dawn Fletcher (and others) Beware of only preparing for rain – I got sunstroke on my first day! Kim Atherton
